At the age of 17, Kim Mitchell relocated to Toronto from Sarnia. In Toronto, he played guitar in
bar bands. Mitchell served as the manic frontman for the eccentric hard rock outfit, Max Webster.
Established in Toronto,
Max Webster was one of the most coveted and most original groups in Canada during its heyday in the late '70s. The band gained
a reputation for their over-the-top, high-energy concerts and for their LPs.
Max Webster gigged all over Canada, and
by 1980, they tagged along with the high-profile rock act, Rush, in Europe, Great Britain and the U.S. Along with lyricist
and fellow Max Webster band mate Pye Dubois, Mitchell penned such popular tunes as High Class in Borrowed Shoes, Hangover
and Paradise Skies. The band is also noted for Let Go the Line and A Million Vacations.
In 1982, Mitchell pursued a
solo career after spending some time as a producer and a session guitarist. He established a band that was comprised of Peter
Fredette - a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Dubois stayed on as Mitchell's lyricist. And their efforts continued to appeal
to the concerns of the Canadian male teenage population.
Singles included: All We Are and Go for Soda (1984); Alana
Loves Me and Patio Lanterns (1986); and Easy to Tame (1987).
By 1989, Mitchell churned out Rock 'n' Roll Duty - a tune
adapted from his life. The song turned out to be a major hit in Canada. The song was followed by Rocklandwonderland, I Am
a Wild Party and Expedition Sailor.
The LP Shakin' Like a Human Being garnered the Juno Award in 1986 as album of the
year, and additionally sold over 300,000 copies. Mitchell himself claimed a Juno in 1983. He was recognized as the most promising
male vocalist. And in 1990, he was honored with the male vocalist of the year title.
Juno Award nods additionally followed
in 1991 and 1993.
Behind Mitchell's somewhat quirky image, there is an imaginative rock guitarist and an artisan with
considerable writing talent.
Mitchell's stage performances have been largely limited to Canada, where he has found tremendous
success on the summer concert circuit. He was a regular at the Kingswood Music Theatre in Maple, Ontario, in the 1980s.
1990, Mitchell's career went through somewhat of a drought. His albums during that era included Aural Fixations (1992); Itch
(1994); and Kimosabe. Aural Fixations went on to achieve gold certification and a greatest hits compilation that came out
in 1995 claimed platinum status.
Mitchell continued to play clubs, small venues and big-name concerts. Max Webster also
played occasional reunion concerts.
